Problem 27P

(II) What is the likely identity of a metal (see Table 10-1) if a sample has a mass of 63.5 g when measured in air and an apparent mass of 55.4 g when submerged in water?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 22P:

        We are trying to find the density of the metal by submerging it completely in water.

Step 1 of 4</p>

Concept:

        Density of a body is defined as the ratio of the mass of the body to its volume Mathematically,

                                                                 …(1)

        Archimedes Principle: Volume of water displaced by the body, is equal to the volume of the immersed part of the body in water.

Step 2 of 4</p>

Real mass of the metal    

Apparent mass of metal  

Change in the mass        

Density of the water        

Density of the metal    

Step 3 of 4
